AV-8B Harrier II - SF2. ver.2018


AV-8B Harrier II. 

This is my humble rework of AV-8B.

Basic modding skills are required to run this mod.  (copy/paste, mod folder structure etc.) 

It is designed for and works only in SF2 series.

 

Around 2 years ago - January 2016 -  KillerBee approach me with the possibility of updating bobrock's harrier.  After some time, we had prepared the updated file ready for upload. Small changes here and there corrected few things. And great skins by Killerbee.

And then KillerBee disappeared from CA forum. Honestly, up to now, I have no contact with him. last - 4th May 2016. 

So harrier stayed on drive waiting for his comeback. But .... I couldn't resist...And iI started to mod this again. Since I had no KB skin templates I had to do all new skins...and more.

So now I am here...

It ended with new cockpit and a whole set of new skins and decals on whole remodeled 'old' Harrier. - there is no single part of an original model that hasn't be touched/remodeled etc.

First of all...If you want to count rivets....Do not. 

Many things could be done other way....but I did it my way. So you have to bear with it.

All skins are in 4096x4096 format. So you can easily resize down. 

Decals are based on my and KillerBee research. All serials are correct for the first version of Harrier II. Not always (but mostly) correct for unit/year of service etc.

You will find separate upload soon with Operation Desert Storm skins and decals - Only units that participated in the operation.

Animations:

1= canopy open - close

4= refueling probe - beware of a speed limit

************************************************************************************

 

for proper sound work you should add these lines into soundlist.ini

SoundFilexxx=xxxx
SoundFileXXX=USMComm_1
SoundFileXXX=Equalizer

[Equalizer]
Priority=NORMAL
Looped=TRUE
NumBuffers=2
3DSound=TRUE
DopplerEffect=FALSE
MaxDist=1000.000000
MinDist=100.000000
InsideConeAngle=360
OutsideConeAngle=360
ConeOutsideVolume=100

[USMComm_1]
Priority=NORMAL
3DSound=FALSE
NumBuffers=1
Looped=TRUE
FrequencyControl=FALSE

************************************************************************************

 

Credits.

Me - whole sort of strange things - model-re-model, new cockpit, skins, decals, ini files etc.

Ravenclaw - BRU-42 ITER models.

331Killerbee - ideas, good words, research primary work on skins and decals, work on ini files, loadouts, effects etc.

Crusaders - help with avionics ini.

bobrock- original 3d model - Thank you and thanks to KillerBee.

Thanks to a lot of people who helped me with this mod...Stratos, Crusader, Geary, gurru, Soulfreak,76.IAP-Blackbird, and others.

Thank you all CA users.

 

Yes I know its huge  - but I couldn't make it smaller.

Be sure to download all 4 parts and optionally - ODS skins/decals set.

 

Enjoy. I enjoyed it much when making this pack.

You're kidding, right? THIS... IS... AWESOME! Such amazing quality! Proper good job, mate!

Just wondering, are you planning to make the AV-8B+ too, with Spanish and Italian Navy skins maybe? But take your well deserved rest now. It's summertime!

Hello guys,

For some reasons, i can't use this mod on my install, the sim loads until 80 - 90%, then i can hear the ingame sound, but image is still locked on the loading screen. Do you have any idea?
